Some cards cost $4.95, most cards cost $5.95. You need to find ones that have fix value of $25 with $3.95 purchase price. It's in gold packaging. Rite Aid will label the price $28.95. As with CVS, I found out you can use multiple charge cards for one transaction at Rite Aid. I got rid of all those $4.99 and $5 cards..

Why is this any good? As you know TigerDirect AmEx rebate cards start charging $2 maintenance fee every month 5 months after they were issued. The newer TigerDirect MasterCard rebate cards expire after four month. The AmEx prepaid cards you purchase in the store do not have maintenance fees and they don't expire in another 20 years in most cases. You're basically consolidating all those small rebate cards and effectively remove the maintenance fee and expiration dates.

Plenti points can be redeemed at RiteAid, Macy's, Exxon Mobil, AT&T,...etc. So consider these as good as money, thus $1.05 Money Maker.

Limit two per RiteAid card.

An easier way to unload low balance giftcards is just to use Square and eat the 2.75% processing fee, which isn't that much if you are doing low balances. You can swipe the cards on your phone and the money gets direct deposited to your bank account. Easy.

That's true. But some people complain about the cost of a stamp for the rebate, they probably don't want to lose 2.75% converting them to cash. The best way to empty those rebate cards is to buy Amazon e-GC or use it at gas station.

But a $25 prepaid cards have much better use than that. Believe me.

hmmm. Why not using those cards to pay for cable bill or postpaid phone bill if you have any. A lot of grocery stores also accept multiple prepaid card in one transaction. You don't even need to know the balance on the account in advance.

Yes that's true too. There are many ways to empty those rebate cards. A lot of people still lost money to American Express because they didn't use up the cards in time.

Not on the GC purchases.

That's true. But if the cards are expiring (or maintenance fee coming) then you might as well use them. Most TD FAR deals are money maker after 5% or 10% cash back. So you can consider anything you paid with TD rebate cards discounted by whatever the cash back minus the cost of mailing the rebates.
